in thread why Perl5 will never die

Agreed. There is still Perl code being written, paid work to be had, and meetups, workshops and conferences all over the world sponsored by the Perl community. London (e.g.) averages slightly more than one social meeting every month, along with technical talks and whatnot. Something not being as popular as one would prefer is not the same as being dead. But I don't expect this whining will ever stop, there are always a few who feel the need to complain at length and they mostly seem incapable of being consoled.

So I'm talking to the audience, not the doomsayers. Be cheerful! Write code and enjoy yourself if you can. :-)
